I shot this roll of Kentmere over two photo walks, one by the river near Stone Arch and another through a nearby community garden.
The river photos turned out decent.
For some reason the garden photos mostly ended up overexposed. This is one of the better ones.
It’s not terrible, but it’s one to two stops over exposed based on what I wanted it to look like.
This overexposure got worse when I added a yellow 15 filter. The filter should reduce light by 1.33 stop and I adjusted all of my exposures by one stop to compensate. The photos ended up like this.
A clear sunny day, 100 ISO film, a yellow filter removing 1.3 stops of light. Following the Sunny 16 rule I wouldn’t think that an exposure of 1/60 at f11 would be this overexposed.
This could point to a camera problem. Since the river photos aren’t wildly over exposed that makes me think it’s not the film or the development. I used the same meter for the whole roll, but maybe I accidentally changed a setting? Maybe it’s due to operator error and I thought I was setting f11 and actually set f5.6 or something? Or maybe I just don’t know what I’m doing. That’s pretty likely, actually.
These were shot using a Pentax Spotmatic ii. Developed in Rodinal 1+50 for 12:00 at 22C. Scanned with an Epson 750
